We love the Washington Post video series, “BrotherSpeak,” exploring the lives of black men in the U.S. Through pictures and one-on-one interviews, in-depth stories and award-winning video, black men speak about their fears, loves, and dreams.
The creator speaks to why these three emotions were chosen:
We chose these words because we believe they represent fundamental human emotions and impulses that many black men’s experiences provide them a unique relationship with and perspective on. The point of our series is to highlight the three dimensions of these qualities as they relate to black men, while also touching on the universal human qualities illustrated by each. We believe a discussion of these words can help round out the image of black men in popular culture and touch spaces in our experience rarely explored by mainstream media.
This is only the latest project that amplifies the voices of men as they speak about love, intimacy, and matters of the heart. Here’s the latest BrotherSpeak video on “Love.”
